Andrew Abraham

andy-0101 My name in Andrew Abraham. I have been investing in commodities and managed futures since 1994. I adhere to the philosophy of trend following. Trend following stresses a disciplined approach to commodity/ futures trading. Successful trend following and commodity futures investing requires patience, discipline and actively managing the risk. What sets me apart from other traders is that I am not only concerned about the return on investment but how much risk I will have to tolerate to achieve my goals.

Senator Debbie Stabenow’s Press Release on MF Global

I greatly want to thank Senator Stabenow as well as all other Congressmen& women and Senators who have taken up the cause of MF Global.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 13 — The office of Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., issued the following news release:

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Chairwoman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today held a hearing to further investigate the circumstances surrounding financial firm MF Global’s bankruptcy, the eighth largest bankruptcy in U.S. history, and discover what happened to over one billion dollars in the firm’s customers’ money. Former CEO Jon Corzine, who was subpoenaed by Chairwoman Stabenow to compel him to attend the hearing after he did not agree to do so voluntarily, testified at today’s hearing along with other MF Global executives.

During her opening remarks, Chairwoman Stabenow said: “It’s now been a month and a half since the firm collapsed and customer money is still nowhere to be found. This isn’t the Dark Ages. MF Global didn’t keep their books with feather quills and dusty ledgers. The rules about keeping customer money segregated are pretty straightforward. That it’s been over a month, and teams of lawyers and forensic accountants still can’t figure out what happened, raises very troubling questions.”

Michigan resident Roger Hupfer, a grain elevator operator with Freeland Bean and Grain in Freeland, MI, was among a panel of customers impacted by the collapse of MF Global to testify before the Committee today.

During his testimony, Roger Hupfer said: “Our customers place great confidence and trust in us when delivering their commodities to our facilities, and they expect us to provide and maintain competitive, perpetual marketing programs to assist them with their risk management. It is this very confidence and trust that was shattered by the MF Global Bankruptcy…If this situation is not resolved, I feel it will have an impact on rural communities across the country.” *Full opening remarks by Chairwoman Stabenow and complete testimony by Roger Hupfer below. MF Global Holdings Ltd. declared bankruptcy October 31. Since then, federal officials have been unable to find a significant amount of the firm’s customers’ money. It is currently estimated that up to $1.2 billion is missing. MF Global customers included many farmers, ranchers, small business owners and other middle-class Americans. The FBI has reportedly opened a criminal investigation into the MF Global bankruptcy. The Senate Agriculture Committee has jurisdiction over commodity trading and its regulatory agencies as commodity trading is traditionally, and presently, used by many farmers to limit their business risk.

New York-based MF Global was in part a Futures Commission Merchant, coordinating the purchase and sale of futures contracts for its clients. Futures are a type of investment product used to hedge risk by locking in a known price on a commodity that otherwise fluctuates in value. For example, futures contracts can be used to lock in a set price on commodities like oil, or agriculture products like corn and wheat.
